I've been thinking about this, and anyone with a concrete knowledge is most helpful. Will low-end DX10 cards be like mid-range DX9 cards? Or will the power be the same, just with a new DX in it?

I would love to buy a mid-range DX10 and be over the top in terms of DX9 cards :whistling:

The DX10 technology itself is 6 to 8 times faster than DX9 because it has significantly reduced overheads and pipeline utilisation is alot better, but yes a mid range dx10 would probably be alot better than even a fairly high end DX9, DX10 is a big improvement and there is othe technology coming with it that will improve performance, we will also see the first GDDR4 cards as well.

Will a mid-range DX10 be (in American buckaroos) close to like $200, or more like $300? Any idea or prediction?

I am being patient and waiting for DX10 but when cards come out, I want to know if I want to still be upper tier (without being broke) what level card (DX10) I should get.

Well its impossible to predict the exact pricing but it will be a full range release as normal so there will be a decent choice in the $200-$300 i would imagine.

No exact date as of yet(there rarely is one) but its slated for summer so it could be june or as late as August, past experience though it will be late june early july as that as the normal release time before that american holiday on July 4th which apparently is classed in with christmas as a spending holiday.

Really? I don't shop then...maybe 'cause it's the beginning-ish of summer?

I don't know but I will be dishing out at least $200 for a new DX10 card, so I'm hoping that they come decent in that range :whistling:
